Aran's Warm Roasted Brussels Sprout Quinoa Salad, Pear & Crispy Chorizo Salad

Today, we are going to talk about Brussels sprout! (my glamour score just dropped of 15 000 points here, I know!)

Don’t be sad. We can’t just be eating banana pancakes and drinking chia smoothies, as on Instagram.

We have to eat Brussels sprouts too. Roasted, they are just SO good.

Anyone who did not like them will tell you.

And I’ve told you about this yeaaaars ago (such a pioneer!): do not boil them, do not cook them, roast them!

I’ve been eating such a crazy amount of Brussels sprouts lately. Like a crazy cat lady. But with Brussels sprouts. Yes.

You got to understand: they’ll be out of season soon and their days are numbered.

I’ve shredded them, eaten raw or cooked, mixed them with my pasta dishes, my squash salad and even made one of my favourite Superbol with these little green gems!

Yesterday, while I was flipping through the pages of Aran’s gorgeous bookSmall Plates & Sweet Treats (looking for a cake recipe to prepare actually!), my eyes get caught by this Roasted Brussels sprout, quinoa, pear and crispy chorizo salad… I couldn’t say no. Just can’t.

We already know that chorizo is a staple at home (PROPS to my Portuguese neighbourhood!), with pears, Brussels sprouts and quinoa? Pass the fork, please!

Cake lost its battle on this one. Man, things change. We grow old. We mature. We eat cabbage and we’re certainly very happy about it.
